Hans Agne Jakobsson - Markaryd
Swedish interior decorator and furniture designer HAJ was born in Hvadhem/Gotland in 1919. He studied architecture in Gothenburg and began his career as industrial designer at General Motors. Subsequently he became an assistant to the prominent furniture designers Carl Malmsten and Werner West. In 1951 he founded his own company, Hans-Agne Jakobsson AB, at Markaryd. There he not only created lighting design but also candlesticks, pieces of furniture and other implements.
As a talented designer who experimented with brass, iron, glass, fabric and wood shavings, he learned how to master direction and colour of light like only few people did. His designs unite practically and a sense of wellbeing.
